difficult to read.

From viewing various census documents from 1901, I have established that Joan (or Johnan or Jane) Morrison was Robert Morrison's wife.  Obviously she had bad handwriting so this probably accounts for it being recorded in various forms over different census??

Under what last name did she die.???

Hi Wayne, many thanks for the information on the Birth details of Alice May Morrison.  I had identified Robert MORRISON Shoemaker (using the 1901 census) where AM morrison is recorded as May Morrison so it was great to get confirmation of her actual birth details and her father being the one I had "assumed" but had no proof of.

She died in Michigan under the surname Morrison.  Obviously never got married in her 93 years!!  Did you find anything that showed her original departure from Scotland to the United States?

Kind regards and many thanks for your work on my behalf.
